Try Freediving with DIVEWORLD

Approx 90 minutes, programme cost £50. 

Who should take this experience?

Freediver try dives are an amazing introduction to the world of breath hold diving (apnea). Ideal first step for anyone thinking of starting the PADI Freediver course. No previous experience is needed and starts from 12 years of age upwards. It’s a great first step in which your instructor will provide a full safety and technique briefing. You can try basic freediving principles and focus on practicing breathhold techniques in a pool. The biggest concern for most is that they "can`t hold their breath". This is the course to learn how.  Ideal for swimmers, SCUBA divers and any water enthusiast.

To enroll in our Try Freediving programme you must be 12 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with snorkeling, skin diving or freediving is required.

Younger than 12? 8 year olds and older can enroll in the PADI Skin Diver course and start the fun.
